In 1993, in New Zealand, a simple man called David Dougherty (Cohen Holloway) is accused by his eleven year-old next door neighbor Kate Coburn (Holly McDonald) of abduction and rape. Despite the evidences, he is found guilty and imprisoned. Three years later, the snoopy and rookie Sunday Star Times journalist Donna Chisholm (Jodie Rimmer) meets Dougherty's lawyer Murray Gibson (Peter Elliott) in a party and convinces him to interview his client. Then she teams up with the scientist Arie Geursen (Tim Spite) that provides evidences for her. Soon Donna is convinced of David's innocence and obsessed by his case. Donna, Murray and Arie do not spare efforts to get a second trial for David and after three and a half years, he is free at last.

"Until Proved Innocent" is a surprisingly good drama of injustice based on the true story of David Dougherty, a man wrongly accused of abduction and rape. The plot is concise but enough to evolve the viewer in David's drama and hold the attention until the important last scenes, with the fate of each main character. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Até Que Provem a Inocência" ("Until Proved Innocent")
